It is intended to clarify the relationship of the Standards to the vocational education civil rights compliance program in New York.

Each of the six sections comprising the Standards is overviewed in section 3; section 4 discusses major provisions. Compliance is briefly addressed in section 5. Section 6 contains the text of the Standards. The statutory, regulatory, or other legal authority for each provision is cited. Examples illustrate how specific provisions may apply to recipients. Sources of information and documents are listed that are useful in determining whether recipients are complying with the standards. Definitions are appended. (YLB)
